In the sections of the book that I have read, the current situation of China reminds me of Brazil. Ji-li Jiang is from a rich family, she loves her parents and thinks every thing is perfect. However, things started to change after her father doesn't let her go to the auditions. She discovers that her family my have future problems with the government if she goes to the audition. This reminds me a lot of Brazil because our current government is very controversial. People are very unhappy with what has been done. Luckily, we have the elections coming up this year, so hopefully things will change.
Another moment of the book that reminded me of Brazil's current situation was when it said there were many rich people and many poor people. Brazil is a county full of inequality. Some people are very rich and others barely have access to food and water. Also, Brazil is a very divided country, so in a region of rich people, poor people are almost not welcome. Our government said that they have reduced the amount of poor people, but it doesn't seem like because in a country like Brazil it is evident the difference between social classes.
